I had never heard of this movie before its release on this DVD. It is a real treat for fans of Seventies horror films, in the vein of Blacula, Count Yorga, Deathmaster, or maybe even The Abominable Dr. Phibes. It sports a number of attractive women and as always focuses on the curious early 1970's attraction to the supernatural. Best of all, though, is the ubiquitous and cheerfully wicked Doctor Death! John Considine plays the part with considerable relish. The story hangs around a guy whose beloved wife has recently died and his desire to resurrect her (he is haunted by her saying, I will come back to you). After many false starts he encounters the ghoulish Dr. Death who promises to help him with his problem, and in fact won't stop once Doctor Death's usual method does not produce results, which is to kill someone else to enter the desired body. I think too much more plot would spoil the movie, but the remainder of the movie is by turns campy fun punctuated with some seriously twisted moments to keep the horror element. Other actors in this feature vary in quality, from the wooden husband to the odd and entertaining cameos by the likes of Florence Marly and Moe Howard!
The print of this movie looks very nice with bright colors and no visible flaws. The sound is similarly clearly audible. The extras consist of a frankly rather boring commentary, but I don't like most commentaries, by Considine and others. The best extras are an interesting interview with Considine and trailers for other movies to be released by Scorpion. I found this movie to be great fun and highly recommend it.
